Helleborus Harlequin Gem

Purchased this Hellebore from Northwest Garden Nursery while at the annual Hardy Plant Society of Oregon meeting. Marietta & Ernie O'Byrne of Northwest Garden Nursery presented a slide show and spoke of the many plants, shrubs, & trees that are planted at their home which is also the nursery. The meeting was held with great flair, a display table of plant material that is in bloom, silent auctions, raffle give-aways, plants for sale, beverages, and snacks. I personally want to give a huge shout out to the Hardy Plant Society of Oregon for throwing another outstanding party. Its kinda like a party........people having lots of fun, meeting up with friends and making new ones.


Hellebores are awesome plants and should never be over looked. Most of the ones planted here at Beech Street Gardens start blooming in January and will continue into April. Thats a lot of bloom time for a plant. They are drought tolerant, trouble free such as pest, and long lived. Its a perfect plant.............

USDA hardiness zone 4 to zone 9
